We can tell you where they are, but you still might not see them.
Andy Wood, education director at Audubon North Carolina, gives us a general idea where the alligators live.
He said the most likely place to find a gator is in the large waterfowl impoundment in the north central part of the preserve. Wood said to drive out Lodge Road for seven or eight miles to reach the waterfowl impoundment. He likens it to a “great big bog.” That, Wood says, is where the gators live.
But the area is expansive, and the gators aren’t really looking to come out and greet visitors, so the “likelihood of seeing one is pretty remote.”
He says gators are also prevalent along the NE Cape Fear River.
